Atletico Madrid is dissatisfied with Joao Felix’s time at Chelsea, with the Portugal international expecting to return to the Spanish capital when his loan at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer.
Felix joined Chelsea on loan from Atletico Madrid in January, but his lackluster performance in England suggests the Blues may not extend his loan.
According to AS, with translation from Sport Witness, Atletico is irritated by the scenario since they believe the loan hasn’t worked out for them at all, and they will now struggle to find a buyer for Felix.
Chelsea needs to improve upfront, but will likely believe there are better choices available than Felix, who isn’t living up to his promise.
Felix, who is still just 23, may have time to turn things around, but he hasn’t settled since moving from Benfica to Madrid, and his loan spell at Chelsea hasn’t helped either.
It’s not a surprise that the La Liga giants are irritated by this situation, as they’ll have hoped Felix’s worth would improve during his time in the Premier League, but, likely, it’s just continued to fall.
